I wrapped up the craft show season the weekend before Thanksgiving:
But when that was over, I also made a couple of sales on Etsy. Hopefully there will be more this month, but the inventory in my shop is a bit thin and I haven't had time to take more pictures.
I also had a fabulous 30th birthday at the end of the month! I took a half day at work, and then had to go for an ultrasound during the afternoon. My doctor was a bit concerned that the baby might be measuring small, so he wanted to have a growth scan done, and it turns out everything is perfect, and she's not actually small. She's measuring in the 48th percentile, and we were able to double check and make sure she's definitely a girl. I know mistakes are rare, but people apparently just LOVE to tell pregnant ladies about someone they knew who was told the wrong sex. ;-)
After a successful ultrasound, my husband and I met up with my parents, his parents, and his youngest brother (who shares a birthday with me) for some hibachi and sushi. I like California rolls and all, but after I have this baby I am going to eat soooo many salmon rolls and spicy tuna rolls!
When dinner was over, Glen and I met up with some friends at The Bookstore for dessert and drinks:
They were able to make me some super tasty non-alcoholic drinks, and the creme brulee was delicious. So much fun. :-)
The day after my birthday was the baby shower. The date wasn't a surprise, since given the schedule I keep there is a good chance I'd have missed it if I didn't know to keep the date clear, but I wasn't clued in on any of the details. My mom, mother-in-law, best friend, and sister-in-law all did an amazing job, and I had such a great time!
Of course, now Stormageddon's nursery is a bit of a disaster area:
Oh, and for the record: those pictures were taken AFTER my mom helped me "organize" things. I definitely have my work cut out for me. But I won't complain, I am just so grateful that this baby already has so many people who care about her and want to get her off to a good start!
One of my friends helped get us stocked up on cloth diapers - she bought us a bunch of prefolds and covers, and turned them into "diaper babies" complete with googly eyes. How adorable are they?!
And since I've fallen behind on belly pictures (we missed week 30, but week 31 is a pineapple, so it's all good because pineapples are delicious!!), here's the one picture I actually have from the shower so far, of my belly with diaper baby googly eyes on it:
What's the verdict on that picture: cute or creepy?? ;-)
